Visitor Reviews of Villars


Paul Meyer from United Kingdom writes:

So this is the scoop. Whilst other well known and well heeled resorts mountain biked the opening weekend of December, it saw us ski perfectly
groomed and acceptable runs in Villars while basking in what can only be described as "Caribbean" conditions. A 2 week stay saw us sample many of the fantastic eateries in resort (apart from one which will remain nameless) and some fantastic Chrimbo dinner at my old mate "Ollie Murphys'" who adds more character to Villars than Micky Mouse at Disney Land. It's this charm which brings us back time after time along with the anticipation of bumping into some of my other favourite characters including my bestie Fun Police Pammy who this year was noticeably absent. God bless you Villars and we look forward to seeing you in April.
